Jimmy Kimmel Pranks Little Girl With Lie Detector Test
Last month, Jimmy Kimmel came up with the brilliant idea to strap kids to a fake lie detector and get to the bottom of their deepest, darkest secrets. The first attempt, in which a little boy named Blake copped to peeing in the pool, among other transgressions, was such a hit the lie detective prank has become a weekly feature on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’
Its latest victim is five-year-old Joelle — who happens to be Blake’s little sister. As usual, Kimmel’s sidekick Guillermo Rodriguez is also in the interrogation room as the pink tutu-wearing Truth Fairy. Watch how Joelle does.
Thanks to a buzzer and a spaghetti strainer outfitted with flashing lights, Joelle gives up the details of her love life. She has a secret crush on one boy who teases her and has taken a not-so-secret shine to another boy who chases her. With these revelations airing on national TV, her kindergarten class will never be the same.
At the end of the interrogation, Kimmel asks Joelle if she has anything she wants to ask the Truth Fairy. She responds to this open-ended question by requesting he buy her a gumball machine for her birthday. We think we speak for everyone when we say Guillermo better be planning on doing some gumball machine shopping.
